WiFi Site

Wi-Fi Site Survey consists of an analysis of the place where a wireless network is going to be installed (RF site survey or wireless site Survey). This kind of survey is also performed in environments where there is already a network but requires technical improvements, identifying problems.

The main goal is to plan a wireless network to provide a wireless solution with the best coverage, the best data transfer rate, the largest network capacity, roaming and the best quality and service capacity (QoS) allowed.

A professional Wi-Fi Site Survey is fundamental to correctly implement a Wi-Fi network with high availability, to identify and solve problems. It is a benefit for your business operation. To perform a correct analysis, our expert technicians visit the place, study the construction blueprint, perform a visual inspection of the installation and use RF frequency mapping tools.

What is the purpose of a Wi-Fi Site Survey?

To identify coverage problems, interferences, wireless devices failures, incorrect settings and roaming problems, all listed in detail;

To identify settings or components that affect the wireless network performance, getting information on how to repair them;

To identify areas that can be improved and solve any performance problems;

To acquire reports with assessment summaries and coverage settings, performance, ability, APs and antennas;

To access a recommendation list, changes and needed improvements;

To highlight a better Wi-Fi network performance and extend the service life of existing wireless systems.

Wi-Fi Site Survey Types

Four types of Wi-Fi site surveys address the major concerns of the network:


Highly strict and recommended for the beginning of a Wi-Fi network project

A model based on the environment and site plan is created using a tool

It is quite economical

Passive (on-site)

It detects failures and interferences on a Wi-Fi network

A professional app to passively listen to the traffic is used on your Wi-Fi network

It seeks for problems with hotspots, signal intensity and environmental noise

It confirms a projection of coverage and its operation

Active (on-site)

It detects communication problems and monitors Wi-Fi network performance

The testing equipment is connected to the Wi-Fi network and simulates a user

The place and the APS are analysed with latency-sensitive apps, like VoIP over Wi-Fi
